Stuck on getting the timing belt on

I am half way through the job. Everyone's advice has helped out so far, thank you. I am at the point of putting the new timing belt on and it won't slip over the tensioner. I have started putting the belt on at the crankshaft and worked CCW over the idler and to the exhaust cam, etc. The belt doesn't seem super tight on the exhaust cam, but its too tight to get to the next notches in the belt.

Do I put my effort on slipping it over the tensioner or should I be getting it tighter on the exhaust cam/idler?

tukaniSVT Yeah, they are special tools. I got mine at CFM.

And FLYLOW, looks like you got this process down. Good job.

Blue5ive Massive also sells the tools. About $35 or so.

snake eyes I believe c-f-m has them under "adjustable cam gear tool" its a bar and a screw that goes into the block.

Don't forget to pick up the sockets that you will need too (e18 and t55)

black flat plate at the end is holding them in place, and that pin with numbers ending in 42 at the bottom

tukaniSVT Congrats on giving the SVT some TLC.

Now you have no reason, to not autoX ...

J/k ... glad to hear all went well.

And the zetec engine is actually quite easy to work on. That's why I don't mind tearing into it.
